Prayer 1863: Third Sunday in Lent
We come before You,
O Love above all Loves,
gathered before your altars,
giving thanks to your Holy Name.
Cleanse us of all that separates our hearts from You,
Our Creator and Helper,
that we may worship You with rejoicing.
Open our eyes to see your wonders, O Living God,
that we may hear your call of repentance and new life.
You are our Home, O Savior:
may we carry your healing love into the world.
Joined as one Body,
led by the Spirit,
sanctify us to do your will, O Redeemer.
Pour out your blessing like a balm, Lord Christ,
and gather into your embrace those we now place before You.
